This is me close to the top of Mount Borah about a year ago. I'm the one in the black jacket trying to look like I know what I'm doing climbing a mountain. The 12,662 foot summit is the rounded part a bit above my right hand.

I can see it now -- a lavishly illustrated calendar entitled "Men of Early Retirement" ($49.99 + postage). Someone could retire nicely on the profits.
You are very kind, if slightly sight impaired... Is this calendar to be "full monty"? That should result in lots of giggling and pointing!

I decided to post more of a close up photo. I'm an avid outdoorsman, so naturally my favorite photos are from my adventures. You may have noticed I kinda like the Grand Canyon

And under that hat is the same hair style favored by Ziggy and Westernskies

Hey, remember that Alan was talking about hiding the "embarrassment". For proud people who feel differently, I won't dissuade you.

And this calendar better be published soon, as the "stats" of our FIRE'ed heroes are dwindling fast if the market keeps moving like it does today.

No, I am still NOT in. I have a fiduciary obligation to people who entrust me with their coffee cans filled with Krugerrands and buried in my backyard.
